Mystery Hum Audio Sound – VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Back in January / February of 2016, I experienced a strange auditory phenomena on-and-off for about 26 days. Was it the notorious Worldwide Mystery Hum phenomenon? Upon mentioning it to my good friend and PsiOp-Radio co-host Mack White, I discovered that he too had a strange auditory experience last year in October. Though we are geographically distant (I in Austin and he in Fort Worth) we compare notes and discuss this puzzling phenomenon.

Book of the Week…Black Elk Speaks

by John G. Neihardt

Black Elk Speaks is a 1932 book by John G. Neihardt, an American poet and writer, who relates the story of Black Elk, an Oglala Lakota medicine man. Black Elk spoke in Lakota and Black Elk’s son, Ben Black Elk, who was present during the talks, translated his father’s words into English.[1] Neihardt made notes during these talks which he later used as the basis for his book.[2]

The prominent psychologist Carl Jung read the book in the 1930s and urged its translation into German; in 1955, it was published as Ich rufe mein Volk (I Call My People).[3]

Reprinted in the US in 1961, with a 1988 edition named Black Elk Speaks: Being the Life Story of a Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, as told through John G. Neihardt (Flaming Rainbow) and a State University of New York Press 2008 Premier Edition annotated by Lakota scholar Raymond DeMallie, the book has found an international audience. However, the book has come under fire for what critics describe as inaccurate representations of Lakota culture and beliefs.

In the summer of 1930, as part of his research into the Native American perspective on the Ghost Dance movement, the poet and writer John G. Neihardt, already the Nebraska poet laureate, received the necessary permission from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to go to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Accompanied by his two daughters, he went to meet an Oglala holy man named Black Elk. His intention was to talk to someone who had participated in the Ghost Dance. For the most part, the reservations were not then open to visitors.[4] At age 13, Black Elk had also been part of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and he survived the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre.

So here’s another installment of the “weekly” newsletter. Tons of news links worth exploring to satisfy your cravings for weird articles and information.

Some of the many news items on my radar that I think you should definitely take a look at include…

World Congress on Mummy Studies “Declaration Of The Scientific Community Regarding The Fraud Of Extraterrestrial Mummies,” Paul Seaburn’s reportage on same over at Mysterious Universe, plus The Atlantic‘s article The Racism Behind Alien Mummy Hoaxes.

UFOs: Reframing the Roswell Slides Fiasco
Art by Red Pill Junkie via Curt Collins’ BlueBlurryLines.com

Mufon & Ufology’s Continuing Death Spiral … starting with the mass resignation of MUFON membership over the organization’s response to a former State Director’s online racist rant, and the resignation of more State Directors (Washington State’s James Clarkson) as well as the organization’s Director of Research over the lack of scientific rigor on display at this year’s annual symposium which focused on unverifiable testimony presented at the “Secret Space Program” MUFON conference.

There have been a few noteworthy folks who’ve recently passed away:

There are a ton of links dealing with the early release of the thousands of documents related to the assassination of JFK – with more scheduled for probable release in October:

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

This week’s “Book of the Week” is another UFO anthology; this one is from the early 1990s and has a concluding essay which (much to my surprise) also delves into the relevance of Virtual Reality as a helpful metaphor for the UFO contact phenomenon like my own essay in the Reframing the Debate anthology.

Book of the Week…

UFOs The Final Answer?
Ufology for the 21st Century

Edited by David Barclay & Therese Marie Barclay
Featuring: Arthur Tomlinson, K.W.C. Phillips, Robert Moore, Roger Ford, Joseph Dormer, Charlotte A. O’Connor and David & Therese Marie Barclay

From EHE.org – The Exceptional Human Experience website… 

“Anthology on aspects of UFOs with the emphasis on hypotheses. The editors review a number of views on UFOs in the first chapter. Arthur Tomlinson surveys historical sightings of UFOs in ancient Egypt, Biblical, and classical times through the 19th century. K.W.C. Phillips deals with “the psychosociology of UFOlogy,” emphasizing that what we are actually studying are reports (texts), not first-hand data. He emphasizes the religious, historic, and folkloric dimensions of UFOs and notes the presence of a strong psi factor. Robert Moore, in “Science v. Saucery,” tries to provide a traditionally scientific exploration of UFOs. His chapter is a good survey of the “normal” counterhypotheses, both objective and subjective, which could explain 85% of all sightings. For the rest, he sets forth the “Mundane-Synthesistic Hypothesis,” in which synthesistic is “defined as many separate factors cumulating into a single result” (p. 92). Roger Ford describes what appear to be cases of the government spreading “deliberate disinformation” (p. 106) about seeming UFOs. Therese M. Barclay describes some of the best sightings she and others have investigated and concludes that UFOs are real but do not make sense within our accepted worldview: “It might be that they are real in a way our present-day cosmologies can’t conceive” (p. 113). Joseph Dormer argues that “the origins of UFOs, and their alien occupants, probably lies within us” (p. 152). Charlotte A. O’Connor sets forth a “racial dream hypothesis” to explain UFOs, especially UFO abductions. In the concluding chapter, David Barclay points out that “ufology as it presently stands [is] a loosely interconnected series of belief systems from which anyone can choose on the basis of personal preference alone” (p. 172). He also feels that skepticism is the least defensible choice and the most counterproductive. He proposes a holographic virtual reality model as the source of UFOs. Taken together, the viewpoints expressed offer an up-to-date survey of UFO explanations and counterhypotheses that is both quite comprehensive, and in some instances, presented in some depth.”

70th Anniversary of the Birth of the Modern UFO Era

Audio interview of Kenneth Arnold (YouTube)

This week marks the 70th anniversaries of the two most seminal events in the birthing of the modern UFO era’s major myths: Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of a shimmering squadron of delta shaped objects over Mount Rainier, Washington and the crash of a mysterious ‘whatsit’ outside Roswell, New Mexico with alleged alien bodies recovered by the military. Both events occurred in the Summer of 1947, with the Arnold sighting cited as kicking off the American Flying Saucer craze and the Roswell newsflash only coming to prominence with the publication of The Roswell Incident (by Charles Berlitz and William Moore) in 1980.

I grew up believing in the classic myth of Roswell representing crashed saucers and pickled aliens scooped up and covered up by the US government but have since come to lean heavily towards the research documented by Nick Redfern in his two books: Body Snatchers in the Desert in 2005 and its recent follow-up, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy (May 2017). Both books detail a probable American project melding nefarious human experimentation with advanced avionics / nuclear radiation research. A sort of Project Paperclip (American importation of German Nazi scientists) meets Unit-731 (the Japanese version of Germany’s Dr. Mengele horrors) combining Fugo-balloons, unwitting human subjects (both Japanese and American), and Nazi Horten-brother flying-wing technologies. It’s a lot to take-in and no one wants to believe it but given the facts that we already know regarding each area of research (not to mention the CIA’s MK-Ultra sub-projects) it becomes all too plausible. Well, Nick Redfern is among the illustrious list of speakers presenting at one of two different UFO conferences being held in Roswell this year.

“Challenges to ET” conference organizer Guy Malone.

Albuquerque Journal coverage of upcoming conferences.

Given the sad state of UFOlogy this year (see our previous issue and this issue’s news headlines) it will be interesting to see what new information is presented at the two conferences being held. I will be attending the “Challenges to ET” conference hosted by Guy Malone that features Nick Redfern, Jack Brewer, Greg Bishop, Michael Heiser, and Joseph Jordan. I’ll also likely catch a speech or two at the Roswell Incident conference that is presented by the Roswell Daily Record newspaper which is set to feature presentations from Richard Dolan, Linda Howe, Nick Pope, Chase Kloetzke, Chuck Zukowski, Debbie Ziegelmeyer, Race Hobbs, David Marler, Marc D’Antonio, Alejandro Rojas, Courtney Brown, and Josh Gates.

So, if you are going to be in Roswell from June 29th to July 2nd, drop me a line at SMiles@AnomalyArchives.org and maybe we can have some interesting conversations-over-saucers!

Meanwhile…

Stop UFOlogical Cultural Appropriation &
Exploitation of Ancient Human Remains!

Gaia TV Covers the “Mystery” (Facebook Video)

You have undoubtedly come across news items alleging the discovery of a new mysterious body from Peru being touted as a mummified, possibly alien, body. Blogger and researcher Curt Collins (Blue Blurry Lineswrites:

“The remains of the dead should not be used as props for UFO promoters and entertainers like Maussan and Gaia. We’ve had the Star Child, Greer’s Sirius “Atacama Humanoid,” and when challenged about the BeWitness Slides, Maussan offered a bounty for the child’s body itself.
Forensic Anthropologists should be in charge of this kind of thing. Once the science is done, if there’s anything valid, share it with the world.
Until then, let the dead rest in peace. Don’t support the exploitation.”

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Collins on this issue. You’d think folks would have learned by now, especially after the Roswell “Alien” Slides debacle promoted by Jaime Maussan and others fell apart in May of 2015. Yet the human will to believe continues, with many UFOlks looking for the next Smoking-Gun / Holy-Grail to prove their beliefs in ExtraTerrestrial visitation. For a more probable, down-to-earth explanation, see this Peruvian website’s investigation of this and other likely “manipulated artifacts.” (Hat tip to Sharon Hill of Doubtful News)

Blur – Thought I Was A Spaceman
La Musicale 2015

[Verse 1]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In a car park

Cause the desert had encroached upon
The places where we lived
People like me fight
To keep the demons in

But we never succeeded
We never succeeded
In fact we failed

[Verse 2]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In a car park

By the empty harbour
Where the junk boat phantoms float
The fight for happy valley
Sadly, the line broke

[Verse 3]
Thought I found my black box
Washed up on the shore
On outlying islands
Past the land fall

Thought I thought I’d found it
But that was not true at all
I’d walked into a bar
Raised hell

[Verse 4]
Cut the chasm out me
Always and always the same
Put the ghost in writing
And let it be (you again)

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In Hyde Park

[Verse 5]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

You again
You again

The Close Encounters Man
How One Man Made the World Believe in UFOs

by Mark O’Connell

‘The Close Encounters Man’ tells the unlikely story of how the government’s astrophysicist debunker became the phenomenon’s most expert defender.

“If you’re jonesing for an extraterrestrial, you should check out The Close Encounters Man by Mark O’Connell. O’Connell, a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and founder of the UFO blog High Strangeness, set out to write “a UFO book people wouldn’t need to hide from other people.” He found his ideal subject in J. Allen Hynek, the astronomer hired by the United States Air Force in 1948 to debunk the reports of strange objects in the sky flooding in from across the country. Eventually Hynek broke with his handlers and became the first scientist to lend credence to the UFO phenomenon. The author of 1972’s The UFO Experience: A Scientific Study, he would go on to found the Center for UFO Studies in 1973, present a speech on flying saucers to the United Nations in 1978, and develop the “close encounter” scale that would inspire Steven Spielberg’s popular Close Encounters of the Third Kind (“a huge boon to his work,” O’Connell told me. “They shot a scene where the little aliens grab Hynek’s pipe from him and stick it up their noses, but it was cut down to a six-second cameo.”)

In telling the life story of Hynek, the “astro-beatnik,” O’Connell winds up with a stunning panorama of the UFO movement—from fringe conspiracy theorists to amateur astronomers to agnostic scientists—as well as its colossal impact on pop culture and modern science. I recently spoke with O’Connell over the phone about Hynek’s unique story of skeptic turned believer, the scientific study of the inexplicable, and what makes a good UFO witness.”

Read the rest of this interview with author and UFO researcher Mark O’Connell at the Source: The Professional UFO Skeptic Who Believed in Aliens – VICE by J. W. McCormack – May 30 2017

 

On the MUFON / John Ventre Scandal …

“Mark O’Connell, formerly an active MUFON investigator but also an open-minded critic of the organization has severed his ties with them over this series of incidents: UFO Fever.”

 

On Roswell & his debate with Don Schmitt …

Beating a Dead UFO – HighStrangenessUFO.com

“So, the other day I did a webcast with noted UFO authority and all-around nice guy Kevin Randle (you can listen to it here), in which we discussed the Roswell Debate I had recently with Don Schmitt. The debate, for those of you new to the story, took place at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference earlier this fall. It was sponsored by well-known UFO and paranormal media outlet KGRA Radio, but after webcasting the debate live, KGRA has decided for reasons known only to them to reneg on their promise to post the debate on their website.”

anomalyarchivesThe Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

January 2017 – Austin, Texas

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first newsletter issue for 2017. There are a ton of amazing news links below and even more at the Anomaly Archives’ Flipboard page.

Among the many important links are news items related to the Deep State / ParaPolitical / Conspiracy fallout of the American Presidential election and related claims of state-sponsored espionage, election disruption, and cries of a “Fake News” epidemic threatening to upend the American political process and possibly portending increasingly strict online media controls. Given the American Intelligence community’s history of covert perception management and overt propaganda and mainstream media complicity it can be difficult to navigate the treacherous waters amid so much perception management and psychological warfare – see for instance The Mighty Wurlitzer: How the CIA Played America by Hugh Wilford (Reviewed by Michael Warner at CIA.gov [PDF]), The CIA And The Media: How America’s Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up by Carl Bernstein, and this excerpt from Spooked: How the CIA Manipulates the Media and Hoodwinks Hollywood by Nicholas Schou.

Recent articles about “Weaponized Narrative” and government efforts to “Militarize Social Media to Influence Your Beliefs” fit right in with perspectives I’ve been exploring in a recent writing project dealing with “Weapons of Mass Enchantment” and “Covert Folklore Warfare.”

So much of what is characterized as “Fake News” often has roots in reality despite the folkloric / mythic embellishments and deliberately manipulated misinformation efforts of those utilizing such perception management strategems for socio-cultural control campaigns waged across news networks and social media communities.

Also in this installment of the Anomaly Headline News section we have links to articles about “Archives, Anonymity & Animosity Online” … there’s good news and bad news within the Archival and Ufological worlds. Some amazing strides are being made by online UFO researchers and preservationists; some by anonymous individuals. Unfortunately, the vitriolic nature of much internet enabled “discourse” has caused a number of recent flame war flaps that ultimately leave both believers and skeptics reeling.

Just as anonymous hackers and leakers of insider information have played a leading role in recent electoral drama flashpoints, similarly, issues surrounding anonymity in the UFO research community created a firestorm of flame wars online when Ted Roe (of NARCAP & IAUAPR) and others criticized the citing of research by anonymous researchers; specifically Isaac Koi. You can read Isaac‘s (PDF), Curt Collins‘ and other accounts of the occurrence at the links provided.

Isaac Koi is the pseudonymous UFO researcher who is legendary for the legal (ie – permissions-based) liberation of numerous volumes of print UFO research materials through their digitization and public internet-based dissemination of the resulting scanned archives. He began this independently but had increasingly partnered with the Archives For the Unexplained (AFU) in Sweden:

Isaac Koi, of AFU’s International Advisory Board, is making an herculean effort to trace down editors and publishers of journals and newsletters to ask them for the rights to scan the contents of old volumes and to make them available as PDFs. AFU has established a work group to continuously work with Isaac in this effort.”

– AFU: Magazine digitization project & new catalogue

Sadly, it seems humanity hasn’t quite yet mastered how to successfully navigate the benefits and hazards of social-media-tech-enabled community. The incident of Isaac’s self-enforced retirement is a particularly frustrating example of the victimization that occurs on all sides when our social-media-masks are donned, often resulting in the release of the worst animosity pouring out of us through the keyboard-enabled persona of our internet masks. Isaac was not a part of that stye of communication but such childish and demoralizing “communication” has dogged participants on both sides of the “debates” and has swirled around many of the most recent flash-in-the-pan cases from the Roswell Slides saga to the Aguadilla, Puerto Rico Coast Guard infrared video case and even the most recent military infrared video case involving the Chilean Navy. Skeptics and believers on all sides of these and other cases report the deplorable nature of the too often heated social-media-enabled commentary: some of those commenting on such allegedly disrespectful diatribes include Erica Lukes (regarding the Roswell Slides debate, Isaac Koi incident, and harassment both online and in-person at conferences), Sharon Hill (regarding the Turkey UFO Attack hoax video and paranormal online discourse in general), and Leslie Kean (regarding the Chilean Navy infrared video case).

While I advocate for civility and empathy, a study published in Frontiers in Psychology last year called “Changing Conspiracy Beliefs through Rationality and Ridiculing” seems to indicate that empathy is not as effective as rationality and ridicule in the combating of “conspiracy theories.” Rationality should always be encouraged but I still prefer civility and empathy over ridicule, and think both are just rewards for those who wish to receive the same level of respect from others.

The UFO Enigma: A New Review of the Physical Evidence
By Peter A. Sturrock (Study Director)

Review of Peter Sturrock’s The UFO Engima by John Alexander

“In late September 1997 a multidisciplinary group of scientists convened at the picturesque Pocantico Conference Center near Tarrytown, New York to attempt to reevaluate the evidence pertaining to UFOs. Financially supported by Laurance Rockefeller, it was the author, Peter Sturrock, who brought the two disparate groups of scientists together. As president of the Society for Scientific Exploration, Sturrock had support from an organization dedicated to rigorously researching controversial issues. One group attending this meeting had been involved in research regarding the sensitive topic of aerial phenomena. The other group was comprised of individuals with esteemed scientific credentials but who had limited exposure to the UFO topic. They came agreeing to listen to the evidence with an open mind. This book describes in detail both the process by which they made their evaluation and the evidence supporting the case for further scientific study of UFOs.

While relying primarily on fairly well known UFO reports, this book constitutes an important contribution to a popular field infested with misinformation, misunderstandings, and tripe. The UFO Enigma will become one of the few books that scholars searching for more information about a controversial subject can turn to for reliable information.

The book represents a reasonable overview of the core topic — the physical realities of UFOs. It is not encumbered by the equally popular but more controversial aspects of phenomena, such as alien abductions, that may or may not be related to UFOs. Given the group of scientists they were attempting to influence, Sturrock and his cohorts were well advised to stick to the primary subject.”

September 17th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Our recent event featuring former military remote viewer Paul Smith was a tremendous success. We had a full-house and as always, Paul delivered a wealth of information to begin one’s search regarding the weird and wild world where UFOs and Remote Viewing cross-paths.
Paul Smith Alerts Attendees to the Upcoming Remote Viewing Conference.

If you were unable to attend the lecture, a video of Paul’s presentation shoud be available soon thanks to Chuck Robison of what if it really works dot com – for now though, you can listen to this rough audio edition of the lecture (this MP3 link will be up for a limited time, so check it out while you can).

Communion
A True Story
By Whitley Strieber

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3764

“The cover painting of an alien was rendered by Ted Seth Jacobs. The painting is considered one of the most widely recognized popular culture images of alleged “grey” aliens. “The Communion cover,” Jacobs recounts,

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3766“was painted in my small apartment on East 83rd St, in New York City. Whitley sat with me first for a drawing of the Alien. As I sketched, he would indicate how to change the portrait so that it would more match what he saw. It was, I believe, the process used by police sketch artists. Every last detail was corrected according to his instructions. At one point, he said the image corresponded exactly to what he had seen. With Whitley beside me for the subsequent session, I began to paint the image on a wooden prepared panel, going through the same process as for the drawing, until Whitley finally said the image was exact. … As to the gender of the Alien image, to tell the truth, the subject didn’t come up. I don’t even know if the ‘greys’ have gender as we understand it. Whitley corrected the developing image to have a certain fragility, a vulnerability. I suppose we Earthlings usually associate these qualities with femininity.”[2]

“Remote Viewing UFOs”

Paul Smith on Remote Viewing and UFOs

“Using one mystery to try to explain another: That’s what seems to be happening in the perpetual interplay between remote viewing (RV) and unidentified aerial phenomena–popularly known as UFOs–space aliens, and everything connected to them in the popular culture. This confluence of RV and UFOs goes back almost to the beginning of remote viewing itself, and not just the notorious, but some of the most prominent and respected members of the remote viewing community have indulged. Impossible to fully capture in one evening discussion, I nonetheless introduce you to the general outlines of the controversy, sketch for you the interrelationships of some of the main figures and their claims, show you some of the more provocative and interesting results, and explain the advantages and shortfalls of employing remote viewing to ferret out the truth of extraterrestrial visitation.”

August 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last issue… the newsletter will likely continue along in the near future in irregularly scheduled installments.

Successful anomalous events organized by and/or featuring friends and acquaintances have recently occurred across North America – sadly, I wasn’t able to attend any of them. These ranged from the Cryptozoological Dogman Symposium organized by Ken Gerhard (and featuring Nick Redfern, Lyle Blackburn and others) to the East Coast Paracon (featuring friends Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball, Aaron Gulyas, Tim Binnall, and others) and down here in Texas, theEdinburg “Out of this World” UFO Festival (organized by Noe Torres and featuring David Hatcher Childress, Nick Redfern, Ben Hansen, Lynne Kitei, and Stephen Andrasko).

Sadly, the field of UFO inquiry has lost another great seeker… Errol Bruce-Knapp. Many in the field of (what passes for) UFO “research” won’t know who he is but they should. I came to know of him through his moderation of one of the oldest and most important UFO email lists, UFO UpDates (Archives 1996-2013). You can learn more about him (including his involvement in off-shore Pirate Radio DJ years) and his important contributions facilitating communication and hosting a community of UFO truth seekers by listening to these interviews here (on the Spectrum Radio Network), and here (with fellow Canadian Paul Kimball). He hosted several terrestrial radio shows and transitioned to internet streaming and podcasting his Strange Days… Indeed (and Mind Shift) programs. I was honored to be a guest on his show back on September 11th, 2007 (MP3). Good luck finding all of his wonderful interviews of some of the best UFO researchers. Here you can listen to him talk with legendary Area-51 researcher Glen Campbell(MP3), who hosted Errol’s UFO UpDates list site (and maintains the Archives).

“It’s alive… ALIVE!!” Austin Mufon has been resurrected as MUFON-ATX.

A couple of weeks ago I was surprised to learn that the local MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) chapter had been re-launched and begun monthly meetings held way up in the furthest reaches of North West Austin. I was involved in Austin Mufon from about 1990 until 2012 when its chain of leadership was finally broken. I led the group from about 1999 – 2002.

Above: Robert Powell “shares about cases from Georgia, England, Utah, Iowa, New York, and Canada as well as information on the process of UFO investigations.”

I was excited to learn of these new monthly meetings and attended the second such meeting held on July 31st. The meetings are at 7pm on the last Sunday of each month at Palm Beach Vapors. July’s meeting featured Austinite and Mufon’s Director of Research / Founder & Leader of Mufon’s Science Review Board. Also present were Texas Mufon leaders Steve Hudgeons (Director of Investigations & former State Director of Texas) and Teresa Turner (State Director of Texas – and State Section Director). There were about a dozen attendees from around Austin and outside the Central Texas metro area. The highlight of the meeting was getting a sneak peak of Robert Powell’s upcoming presentation for the annualMufon Symposium 2016 – Orlando, FL – August 25th-28th whose theme is “UFOs From Our Oceans to Outer Space.” Robert’s presentation is MUFON’s Top 10 UFO Cases for 2015. You can watch this sneak preview thanks to another attendee I was glad to meet, Daniel Jones of the Vortexas Network, whom I’d briefly met a few months ago in Dallas at the ParaMania event.

For this installment of the Book-of-the-Week we feel it appropriate to highlight the aforementioned Robert Powell’s contribution to the printed knowledge-base of UFO history. Robert was kind enough to speak about that history to our Anomaly Archives audience in his Lecture in 2014 (Video).

Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives Saturday, August 27th from 1-3pm to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Coming up in September, the Anomaly Archives will be holding its annual Free Lecture Event. This year’s talk will be presented by former military Remote Viewer Paul Smith. Details Coming Soon!

Until next time…

UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry
By Michael D. Swords and Robert PowellWith contributions from Clas Svahn, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Bill Chalker, Barry Greenwood, Richard Thieme, Jan Aldrich, Steve Purcell
 ufos-and-govt
“Governments have been concerned about UFO sighting reports since WWII, but historians have never made a concerted attempt to understand their often contradictory responses to the phenomenon. How could something of such potential technological and national security consequence have left no visible trace in the history books? Whether it’s a conspiracy or not, the subject has been marginalized to such an extent that it’s as if the military never acted with alarm on the heels of a UFO sighting, as if the intelligence community never took up the issue behind closed doors, as if government research and development efforts never attempted to duplicate the phenomenon. But they have. Robert Powell will discuss how governments, especially the U.S. government, have dealt with the UFO phenomenon and will provide a hypothesis as to why the phenomenon took its roots during WWII.”

July 28th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

I’ve been reading a variety of print books lately, including Jacques Vallée’s latest published journals (Volume 3: 1980-1989), some rare writings of the late Bob Girard, as well as Whitley Strieber & Jeff Kripal’s latest effort. All of which (and more on my mind) get me thinking about fundamentals of UFO research and some of the earliest attempts at grappling with the mystery. Jacques Vallée’s first attempt is our Book-of-the-Week.

We say it each issue but … we hope you enjoy this newsletter and might consider supporting our efforts by Becoming a Member Today!

Book of the Week…
Anatomy of a Phenomenon
aka UFOs in Space
by Jacques Vallée
vallee-anatomy-phenomenon-01

Amazon.com reviews:

This is a classic work by a well known investigator / scientist / researcher that has been around for years. It represents the ‘old school’ if I may, style of Ufology, which is sorely lacking nowadays. Those were the days that a light in the sky (LIT) would be reason for me to run outside and mount a night long skywatch. No hints of implants, abductions, Roswell, Area 51, etc. I truly recommend this work for anyone who is just starting to learn about this forbidden subject (UFOs) and then take it from there, it will be worth the effort.

No time for small-talk this week…

Below you’ll find our Book-of-the-Week which is one of many Spanish language titles from the Girard Collection. This one is about the infamous Ica Stones of Peru, considered by most to be an admitted hoax by farmer / artist / conman Basilio Uschuya who “said he produced a patina by baking the stone in cow dung.” The stones depict creationist type artworks featuring humans and dinosaurs living and working together as well as advanced technology implying ancient astronaut themes. Several of the stones depict highly sexual content.

As usual we have a smattering of UFO, Parapsyhology, Mysterious Phenomena (like the Worldwide Hum) and Deep State / Parapolitical news links in ourAnomalous Headlines section.

We’re still trying to increase our membership so please consider joining theAnomaly Archives as a Dues-Paying Member. Even if you can’t access our local collections you can support our mission and goals:

June 22nd, 2016 – Austin, Texas

The Anomaly Archives was recently contacted by someone acting as executor for the estate of a woman who was once active in Austin’s local UFO community. We were invited to look through the library of the deceased for books that we’d like to add to our collection before the upcoming estate sale was opened to the public. After traveling over forty miles into the hill country I met with the executor at the home of the deceased and began going through the voluminous library. Besides two full boxes of books and a few years worth of MUFON UFO Journal issues, the executor provided us some more personal items including photos chronicling some strange experiences of the deceased as well as one of her UFO-themed paintings (pictured here).

It was obvious that this local UFO enthusiast was a tremendous fan of abductee / researcher Dr. Karla Turner as evidenced by the multiple copies of her books held in the library. Among the gems we came away with were three non-English editions of Karla Turner’s book Taken: Inside the Alien-Human Abduction Agenda. These include a Japanese, Italian, and German editions. The Japanese edition lists Shinichiro Namiki as associated with its publication, where as the German edition lists Linda Moulton Howe as having written the foreword (likely the same as in this recent English digital ebook “reprint” edition). The Italian version has a preface by Gianfranco de Turris who is an Italian journalist, essayist, writer, and scholar of “fantastic” literature in Italy. I’m really hoping to find an English translation of his preface somewhere online.

So, with Dr. Karla Turner so fresh in my mind I’ve selected her second book as our Book-of-the-Week for this installment!

Meanwhile, in this week’s Anomalous Headlines … check out the interesting articles on video of a supposed “Texas ‘Belgium’ Triangle UFO,” as well as the $10,000 reward for reading the infamous Roswell Ramey Memo, a Dallas’ JFK assassination researcher’s successful free-speech challenge, and many more below!

Last but not least – Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives this Saturday afternoon to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Book of the Week…
Taken
Inside the Alien-Human Abduction Agenda

by Karla Turner

Taken by Karla Turner - Japanese edition

TAKEN INTO THE FRINGE

RESEARCHER FOCUS: Dr. Karla Turner
by SMiles Lewis

My first exposure to abduction researcher/ experiencer Dr. Karla Turner was on September 26, 1992. She was speaking to an audience of approximately 200 people in Austin, Texas. The mini-conference also featured Ed Conroy and George Wingfield, and was organized by the local Austin MUFON chapter. I have seen very little from abduction researchers that I qualified as being of any significance, so Dr. Turner was a particularly unexpected surprise.

She comes across as very strong willed, a trait she may already have had, but which could have been tempered by her interactions with this phenomena. She admits to not knowing the origin of UFOs or their occupants. She simply reports the data that she gathers and experiences herself (about three hundred cases at that time). Some have been critical of her calling attention to “negative” cases. She admits to reporting on those aspects, but is quick to point out that, a) these reports exist, and other researchers are sweeping them under the rug, and b) there are already a number of sources for cases showing “positive” interactions with supposed benevolent entities. Part of her focus seems to be an attempt to strike a balance. How can we gain an objective perspective if we are not hearing all the data?

This mini-conference coincided with the release of her first book on the subject, Into The Fringe . Shortly after her tall< I bought the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. It details the emergance of the UFO and abduction phenomena into her family’s life and their struggle with the ongoing experiences. It is a very personal account which begins in 1987-1988.

Karla earned her B.A. from California State University, her M.A. from the University of Nottingham in England, and her Ph.D. in Old English Studies from the University of North Texas. She is a skeptic in the best sense of the word, but she does believe that something extraordinary is going on.

Her 1992 Austin speech was less about her own experiences, and more about the overall points of interest that she noticed in her research (300 cases she investigated with the help of Barbara Bartholic and others-Barbara had worked with Jacques Vallee on the mysterious cattle mutilations sometimes associated with UFOs). In her speech Karla made twenty specific points regarding trends noticed in the data. These trends are not specifically found in her book “Fringe,” although they are there thematically. The trends reflect darker sides of hidden memory and sexual encounters, which seem to be power plays to dominate the abductee, rather than simple hybridization studies.

These trends continue to be seen in the eight case studies in her most recent book, Taken – Inside The Alien / Human Abduction Agenda. In the book, and during her speech at the July 1994 Annual International MUFON Symposium in Austin, Texas, she made some very important assertions regarding the UFO and abduction phenomena:

ufos-consciousness-2-Slide30

“The abductee also learns from experience that the aliens induce an altered perceptive state in humans during every encounter. Employed for control, it can be used to prevent any undesired responses from the abductee. And the altered state also prevents any objective assessment of the situation by the witness. This means that the witness can only report what was seen, felt, and heard, which is not necessarily a reflection of what actually occurred. By inducing and manipulating altered consciousness in the abductee, the aliens assume full control of the situation and thus exert control over the data reported by the witness.

Abductees report alien-controlled information. This is a fact abduction researchers must face. ….. Until the day we can unmask the alien illusions, however, we can at least study the entire body of reported data, controlled though it may be, trying to learn more about why certain images and events are employed and what they can tell us about the covert directors of these scenarios.”

This statement and her coining of the term Virtual Reality Scenario to describe these altered perceptions are the best recent developments within the abduction research field. They enable us to discuss these experiences as REAL, but with the added potential inherent in describing some encounters as non-physical while there are still other more physical encounters.

Another positive aspect of Taken (in my estimation) is the inclusion of much testimony described as “UFO dreams.” Once again we see the flowing together of dream experiences” with “real” experiences and hypnotically retrieved “memories.” The results are fascinating! Though much of the abductee narratives could be seen as particularly negative, the overwhelming feeling that I came away with after reading the book, and which the abductees themselves seem to have come away with, is a deep sense of ambiguity and indeterminacy. Even if this seems daunting in the search for truth it could just be the ultimate result of our encounters with the unknown. Perhaps we can take some solace in Dr. Turner’s belief that these intelligences are truly “physical, finite and fallible.” If this is so, and they are not some aspect of ourselves or God then we may indeed be able to develop defenses against their intrusions into our reality.

June 15th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of our electronic newsletter.

normalThis past Sunday marked my 45th birthday. It also marked the latest milestone in America’s Amok Murder-Suicide Rampage Epidemic. As some of our readers may know, I am a survivor one of the earliest (pre-epidemic level) mass-shootings by an apparent “Lone Nut.” Not the infamous 1966 UT Tower Sniper incident (whose 50th anniversary will coincide this year with the implementation of UT’s new Campus Carry policy) but rather the lesser known 1979 San Antonio, Texas, Fiesta’s Battle of Flowers Parade shooting. In high school I wrote about the incident (Danger: Parade – Thank God for Mother’s Intuition). On the March 11th, 2008 episode of our PsiOp-Radio show I talked about it with co-host Mack White (starts at about the 48-50 minute mark in the MP3 archive). Mack and I have covered so many of these incidents on the show, talking about the psychology of suicidal contagion known as the Copycat / Werther Effects as well as the potential manufacturing of such “Lone Nuts” as part of sundry covert operations known variously as Agents Provocateurs, False Flags, Strategy of Tension, and even the infamous Manchurian Candidate, Sleeper Agent, MK-Ultra Mind Kontrol Assassins, etc. So on the one-hand, as a survivor, it truly pains me to see such rampant dismissal of these types of events as being “fake” / “totally staged” / “false flags” – over and over, with every new shooting. And yet, I’m parapolitically aware of this country’s deep-state history of mass-murder for political gain as well as its history of exploring how to make people kill, whether through standardized military indoctrination or illicit mind control experimentation.

Whatever the ultimate cause behind Sunday’s horrific mass-murder, it seems only fitting that this issue’s Book-of-the-Week should be Loren Coleman’s important 2004 book The Copycat Effect: How The Media and Popular Culture Trigger The Mayhem in Tomorrow’s Headlines. It’s a difficult read on a difficult topic. Loren is better known for his work in the Fortean field of Cryptozoology – but he’s also known for his interest in and seeming prophetic ability at, deciphering the Twilight Language that permeates the world of these Mass Amok events as well as the Name Game synchronicities that seem to inform the world of other strange phenomena.

Mystery HummmmMind Control

Mystery HumMeanwhile, in this week’s Anomaly News round-up there are several articles of interest including a New York Times article, United States of Paranoia, about the people who feel they are the victims of Gang-Stalking. That article even touches on those who feel they are being attacked by E.L.F. mind control technology and Mystery Hum related phenomena. Two years ago, Jared Keller wrote another excellent and comprehensive article on the Mystery Hums that also touched on the mind control element but also documents the various research into finding the sounds ultimate source. Earlier this year, I myself experienced a series of mysterious deep humming like effects over a period of time. In this week’s news round-up we also have a new article from The Guardian about the Windsor Hum.

We also have links to a Boston Globe article about something I and others have noticed and commented upon for several years now; that there are seemingly fewer alien abductions being reported since 2001. Also, check out the (probably fake) video that’s been circulating of an alleged V-shaped craft floating above Austin, Texas, as well as the many other interesting news links in this week’s issue.
